Wrexham Victoria School WWI Memorial

Wrexham Victoria Council Schools. The above tablet in marble and brass in remembrance to those Old Boys of the above school who fell in the great war. It is a fitting mark to Mr. Chas. Dodd, F.G.S., the headmaster of this school and many years of the old Brook Side school, that in his fast; days as master he should see practically completed this testimony, to those brave young men, 80 or more, who gave the supreme sacrifice to save our homes, wives and children from an unscrupulous foe. We understand that the balance of the fund, which is now closed, is being used to provide a large library for the schools, and will be fitted up in the best style, occupying the whole length of one of the large class rooms. The tablet will be fixed in the entrance porch. The design and workmanship is by Mr. Mossford, monumental mason, Wrexham. The arrangements are now in the hands of Mr. Davies, the headmaster.
